Memorial Day Weekend - 5/28-5/29. Who hoo! Took the Friday off from work to enjoy a wonderful 4 day weekend. Hubby and I are going up north for an overnight getaway at mom and dad's place. Since we are sleeping in a tent, we had to load up the bikes with all the essentials for a camping trip: tent, camping pad, sleeping bags, and flash light. There wasn't any room at the inn. The traffic going out was thick going through the city, but finally thinned out as we reached no man's land. Oostburg was the first burg of the day and a nice place for lunch. Stopped at the local pizza joint for a quick bite to eat. After Oostburg, we found Newton, Hayton, Chilton, and Anston. No luck on Charlesburg.

Finally made it to mom and dad's place and unpacked the bike. We found a nice spot near the river and put up the tent. One problem though. The rainfly was missing. Oh well, not much we can do. Looks like we are sleeping under the stars. Went out for fish and made a fire. Hung out with mom and her friend and had a few adult beverages.

We left in the early morning and stopped for breakfast in Cecil. On the way back, we got a few more towns - Briarton, Binghamton, and Appleton. Exact mileage is unknown, but at least close to 450.
